Prosperity in Perspective 4
Money Comes, Part One
by Pastor John Hamel
In our last study we saw Scriptural precedent
for God transferring wealth from the hands of the disobedient into the
hands of the obedient. We also said that there is a great transfer of
the world’s wealth that is now in the process of coming into the Body of
Those who pay tithes and offerings, obeying any further
instruction of God, are the ones who will be trusted by God to manage this
wealth. Those who make His priorities their priorities will indeed
see tremendous amounts of wealth coming directly into their hands.
What are God’s priorities? We can
easily discern what God’s priorities are in the Earth by looking at Heaven’s Solitary Missionary, Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ come to Earth? Once we fully understand why Jesus Christ
came to Planet Earth, we will more readily understand why prosperity comes
into our hands.
Prosperity comes to us for the same primary reasons
that the Lord Jesus Christ came to the Earth.
Christ Came to Seek and to Save the Lost
“For the Son of man is come to seek and to
save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10)
This is the number one reason for Jesus
coming into the Earth. Jesus came into the Earth to save lost sinners
from the penalty and punishment of their
sin. He came to save the world, not to judge the world. The
next time He comes, He will judge the world. (John 3:16-17) However,
He is still reaching out to the world with His offer of forgiveness and
salvation. He is still seeking and saving the lost.
This is also the number one reason for
wealth coming into the hands of the Believer. Supernatural prosperity
in perspective comes into our hands to save lost sinners from the penalty
and punishment of their sin. Jesus is still reaching out to the world
with His offer of salvation and forgiveness. Only now He does it
through His Body of Believers who presently live
in the Earth.
People who do not understand that money
comes “… to seek and to save the lost” will not participate in the transfer
of wealth that is presently occurring in the Earth. It is vitally
important to get this straight. If you do not want to pay tithes and
offerings in faith, willingly, for the express purpose of seeking and
saving the lost people of this world, you better get used to eating
macaroni and cheese. You are going to be eating lots of it. Not
the expensive home-made kind, either. You will be eating the no-name
stuff in the white box marked “4 for $1.” While the rest of us are
building TV stations, Radio stations, Bible Schools and Churches, you
are going to be living on macaroni and cheese and being angry at God for
something He could not help you with. You would not let Him.
You were unwilling.
“And I say unto you, Make to yourselves
friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may
receive you into everlasting habitations. He that is faithful in that
which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least
is unjust also in much.” (Luke 16:9-10)
This rather complex looking passage of
Scripture is actually quite simple. Jesus is saying, “Use your money
to win souls. When you die, they’ll be in Heaven waiting to thank you. If you don’t use your
money to win souls, don’t expect Me to give you much when it comes to
supernatural prosperity. End of story.”
Christ Came to Destroy the Works of Satan
"…for this purpose
the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the
devil.” (1John 3:8)
Jesus did not come solely as a spiritual
Savior and Redeemer to keep fallen man from going to Hell on a greased pole. Jesus came as a physical and an emotional Healer, as
well. More than one-quarter of Jesus’ Ministry was spent casting out
unclean spirits and destroying the works of demon powers in
people’s lives. Jesus performed miracles of healing, miracles of
supernatural provision, miracles over nature and miracles over Satan and
demon powers with amazing regularity.
The Bible says that Jesus
Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) His Miracle Ministry has not and will not change.
When money comes, it is vitally important
that we not only invest it into Ministries that preach Jesus the
Savior. They must also be preaching Jesus the Healer, Jesus the
Provider, Jesus the Miracle Worker and Jesus the Deliverer from Satan and
demon powers. Jesus is the 21st Century Miracle Worker and
too many Preachers deny Him as such.
I make the following observation
respectfully. I listened to a Preacher on television preaching
salvation in Christ. He was doing pretty good until he said, “Jesus
doesn’t heal sick bodies any more. Jesus doesn’t give us authority to
cast out unclean spirits. Jesus doesn’t send the Holy Spirit to
people, enabling them to speak in other tongues. The nine Gifts of
the Holy Spirit are no longer in operation and Christians having wealth is
This very same individual turned right
around in the next breath and literally began begging for money to pay his
million-dollar TV bill. He began to pressure people with guilt by
telling them, in essence, “I’m going to go off the air if you don’t pay my
bills for me and God will hold you responsible.” He then proceeded
with a very ungodly sales pitch, pushing his one hour video, all about what
Jesus does not do anymore, for $75 a pop. I thought to myself, “What
in the world is he doing? I wouldn’t give a dime to someone who
preaches what Jesus doesn’t do anymore and who can’t come up with one verse
of Scripture to prove it.”
Putting money into a Ministry of
negativity, fear, unbelief and ignorance will only reap a harvest of
negativity, fear, unbelief and ignorance. This is not how people are
set free from the works of Satan. People are set free by faith, not
fear. People who invest into Ministries such as the one above, even
good moral people, end up all bound up financially and with demons and
cannot figure out why.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because
He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to
heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and
recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.”
This is what Jesus came into the Earth to
do. This is what Jesus is still doing in the Earth through His Body
of Believers today. He is still preaching, healing, delivering,
recovering and liberating captives.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that
believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works
than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.” (John 14:12)
God wants us to put our money where people
will be set free from demon powers, lust, compulsive human behavior,
sickness, binding habits, fear and sin.
Our loving Father wants us to
put our money where people are taught about their authority in Christ and over Satan.
He wants us to invest heavily into setting people free from poverty,
cancer, aids, depression, insanity, etc., through the operation of the nine Gifts of the Spirit found in First
Corinthians 12. Jesus is still setting individuals free by the Glory
and the Anointing of God.
Money comes to set captives free.
You cannot tell me that Jesus no longer
performs miracles. I am a miracle. You can read my testimony at
“The Albuquerque Fire Pit.”
Jesus set me free
supernaturally from Satan and demon powers and raised me up to set others
free through this Ministry. You simply cannot tell me that Jesus no
longer performs miracles. It is too late. I am a hopeless cause
if you are looking for someone to convince Jesus has stopped performing
We have seen the first two and the most
important reasons why Jesus came and why money comes.
In part two of this study, we will see the
third reason why Jesus came and why money comes.
